I use UCM too, and I believe that this is the best methodology for php4. An eventually choice in favor of MVC can be motivated with the "recycle" advantage, common in languages as Java, but Php has not another alternative (I mean desktop application) that can re-use the model part.
(Php-GTK Excluded).

I am not sure what you mean by recycle. Maybe you mean re-factor.

Anyway, I use Metastorage to generate the model classes from model definition file. The model definition includes classes, variables, relationships and validation rules.

When I want to change details of the model, I just edit the model definition and Metastorage can regenerate all model classes for me in seconds. For me this has been a quantum leap in productivity.
